2023: It’s absolute nonsense to think I’m merging with another candidate – Kwankwaso
Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has described as “absolute nonsense” insinuations of a planned merger between the party and other parties ahead of the 2023 general election.
Kwankwaso made the clarification while addressing journalists shortly after he addressed NNPP members at the party secretariat in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Thursday.
The NNPP candidate blamed mischievous and desperate politicians for spreading the rumour of the planned merger.
“That’s absolute nonsense. You see we believe that we are not above the three or four parties in this country, but by 2023, next year, by the grace of God NNPP will win the election at national and all other levels.
“So, these are people who are failed politicians who have nothing to tell Nigerians other than to spread unnecessary rumour of a merger.
“Merger is already gone. We have our candidates. In all the parties, everybody is campaigning. So, disregard that nonsense.” he said.
Asked if he planned to step down for any other candidate, Kwankwaso fired back: “Don’t ask me that rubbish.”
